Join us for a conversation with disability advocate, Madelaine Sayko. We'll discuss cognitive, neurological, and psychological disabilities in the workplace, implementing comprehensive return-to-work programs, and how to foster better collaboration among organizations that provide services to individuals with brain injury.
Madelaine is President of Cognitive Compass, where her work is directed towards improving employment outcomes for challenged individuals in both the veteran and civilian community. She sits on the board of The Acquired Brain Injury Network of Pennsylvania (ABIN-Pa) and is the Community Education Coordinator for Delaware County, PA. Madelaine authored a significant portion of the ABIN-Pa peer-to-peer training manual: Building a New Life After Brain Injury, and is a contributor to the brain injury guidebook: You Look Great, by John C. Byler. She has also written a caregivers guide that was used in brain injury training for social workers, and served on the Governor’s Brain Injury Recovery Task Force as Chair for Cross Collaboration of Services, and as a representative on the Stakeholders Committee.
